so much of this depends on whether or not congress will work with him. if there's room for negotiation, he'll have more success. if congress holds the line against everything he wants to do, less will get done.
part of it is on him to establish a better dialogue with congress. however, during his first term, the majority in the house operated under a mission statement of blocking everything he wanted to do and making him a one term president. it's very difficult to deliver with a congress like that.
my guess is that the pressure is higher to work together now, so more will get done. everything he promised, though? probably not.
No we aren't. We now know that most Americans don't agree with the old, rich, religious, white guy GOP platform. We also know that women get to maintain ownership of their vaginas for another 4 years. We know that the Tea Party drains life out of the GOP. We now know that unless the GOP begins to champion mainstream positions it's going to continue to suck hind tit. America is changing and the GOP is out of touch. The election proves it.

Yep I always literally laugh when people say he is the most divisive when the exact opposite is true and its what got him elected, twice now.
Not at you TPD but just in general.
I most certainly dont agree with all the stuff Obama and this admin has done by any means but he is not "divisive" to the objective, bipartisan and moderate populations.
Now he is divisive to those that were already divisive themselves and partisan themselves, they have a big influence and are the biggest and loudest crybabies lol. But guess what, in general the majority of america doesnt want those people, we are done with nut job loud mouth extremists.
I hope this mantra carries on and it wakes some people up.
AGain you dont have to fully agree with obama, i certainly dont but the objective/honesty/moderate/bi-partisan train is loading up right now! Maybe you dont want to be in Obamas car and thats fine, pick another car more YOUR style thats what makes us america, but you better damn well get your ass on the train or you are going to be left behind.
IMO if you think he is "the most divisive president ever" which is a sound bite i hear here and there, the problem is you, you need to look in the mirror because the train is passing you by my friend, you are too far left or too far right and im guessing america is done with that obnoxious, ignorant, selfish, blow hard, inane, nonsensical bull****.
watch your feet bitches! Cause here comes the train, try to fix/help AMERICA and stop worrying about you own personally little locker of nonsense.
